osseous matter is...

A self-funded artist project and curatorial platform founded in 2020 by Olivia DeCapri and Kendall Jacob. Without the requirement of generating income, Osseous Matter's main incentive is to create meaningful content for artists and enthusiasts. We arrange intimate collaborations with emerging and underrepresented artists in all disciplines through our programming. Platform-wide, we attribute value to every part of the creative process and emphasize the generative and robust space between here and there. 

Spotlight is an editorial series of studio visits, interviews, and curated playlists. We work closely with artists to display their artwork and create an authentic representation of their ideas and practice. Some artists even help in the design process.

The Gallery often coordinates with guest curators to put on exhibitions. Here, we challenge how physical works can translate into a virtual space and how digital works can be presented innovatively. These shows consider web design as its own artistic medium. We encourage artists to apply, regardless of curatorial experience.

WIP (archived) was an open submission series that shared artists' processes: objects, digital media, thoughts, sketchbooks, poems, sounds, studio setups, performances, and doodles. We encouraged artists to submit frequently and share anything that was relevant to their creative output. Though now an archived project, we believe sharing artists’ processes is important and generative. We still integrate and share WIP in our other programming.
